Pre-kids, my wife and I used to enjoy rides on our '94 GL1500. After our first child in 1997, she rode very seldom up until I sold the bike in 1999. She's never been interested in riding on the GL1800 which will be 4 years old in October. Tonight, we took a little ride (60 miles round trip) down to Galveston for dinner. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy her company on the bike. Maybe this is the beginning of something good. BTW, I was presently surprised at the power of the bike 2-up.
